Will release a song on Allah, Jesus every month: TM Krishna
In the past few days, several singers have come under fire from the Hindu right-wingers and traditionalists for singing Carnatic songs on Allah and Jesus.
Renowned musician TM Krishna has been one of the main targets of the social media attacks. Sick of the attacks, he said on Thursday that he has certain plans. "Considering the vile comments and threats issued by many on social media regarding Karnatik compositions on Jesus, I announce here that I will be releasing one karnatik song every month on Jesus or Allah," Krishna tweeted out.
Hindu Makkal Katchi and other Hindu organizations in Tamil Nadu are not in favour of Carnatic singers using Thayagaraja's tunes to sing in praise of Jesus and Allah.
